Peanut Butter Banana French Toast

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .”

This morning was a little chilly on Florida’s west coast, which triggered my craving for a warm and comforting breakfast. I was going to make a batch of peanut butter banana custard oats, but digging my fork into a pile of egg-battered bread covered in maple syrup and topped with peanut butter and banana sounded much better.

Not to mention, how could I break my new tradition of making special breakfasts on the weekend? I also couldn’t resist using my late grandmother’s adorable snowman plate.

OK, that’s my excuse, but maybe I needed a little sugar high to get me started for the day at the early hour of noon. ;)

Peanut Butter Banana French Toast

Serves One

Difficulty: Easy Peasy

Total Preparation and Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Two slices of thick, slightly stale bread (I used ALDI’s 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread)
  • One large egg plus one egg white
  • One teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Two tablespoons milk (I used Silk’s Pure Almond unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • Two teaspoons light brown sugar
  • One small banana
  • One tablespoon peanut butter (I used Trader Joe’s Crunchy, Salted Peanut Butter)
  • Maple syrup for topping

Steps:

  1. Heat a non-stick pan to medium-low heat and spray it with cooking spray.
  2. While the pan is heating, whisk the egg and egg white in a shallow bowl with the vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and milk. Stir until the mixture is frothy.
  3. One slice at a time, dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture. Allow each side to sit in the mixture for about 30 seconds so the bread can soak.
  4. Place the bread in the heated pan and cook each side for about four minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Assemble on a plate and top with banana slices, maple syrup and peanut butter.
  6. Enjoy!
